Shared Options

Shared options are used to create product choices (such as Size: small, medium, large) that can then be used with multiple products. The main benefit of using a shared option is the time it saves you.  Instead of having to recreate your option list for each product, you only need to set it up once, and then any product can use it.

Radio Button List - Adds a list of options and the customer can place the radio button, or dot, next to their selection.
HTML Area - Adds a field where the administrator can enter HTML code. This can be used for linking to uploaded images, files, etc..
Accessory Checkboxes - Adds a checkbox where customer can select multiple accessories that go along with the product.

You can also edit, clone, and delete an option by checkmarking it, and then pressing the desired button to the right.  If you want to clone, or duplicate an option list, then you will need to type in a new name in the field next to it, and then press the "Clone" button.
